July 22, 2014 Update

This document details the complete list of updates and changes made to TOTAL released with the July 22, 2014 update.

Document 6330  |  Last updated:  02/15/2017 ACN

A new update is ready for you. To download this new update, plus any prior updates you may have missed, just click Help (with TOTAL open), and then click Check for Updates. For detailed instructions on downloading updates, click here.

Here are the three new features you'll appreciate:

  1. Deliver reports directly from the Appraisal Desktop. It saves you clicks and time, since you don't have to open a signed report to deliver it.

  2. File names no longer have to be the same as your Report Description. Simply go to Configuration Settings and choose your naming options:  e.g. Property Address, Internal Order Number, Lender Case Number, FHA/VA Case Number, Client File Number, etc. You can name them whatever you'd like.
  3. Export appointment dates and times to Outlook Calendar. This is especially helpful if you sync your Outlook calendar to mobile devices.

And here are two more improvements you'll notice:

  • After moving a report from WinTOTAL Aurora to TOTAL, you'll no longer see a Dynamic Field Expansion mismatch error for the Design field.
  • Changing the license to be used in the report during signing will correctly update the license section in the report.

Check out the notes below for all of the changes in this update. And, as always, thanks again for giving us your thoughts via the Feedback feature inside TOTAL. We read them every day and we can track them much better than standard e‑mails.
